Burrata in Santa Cruz!

Nathan P. | Sep 2, 2005 12:31 AM

I was in the River Cafe and Cheese shop last week to pick up some mozzarella (see the Mariquita u-pick thread) when on a whim I asked if they ever get in burrata. They confirmed that they do get it and that it arrives Thursdays and sells out quickly. The producer is Gioia Cheese which I believe is located down in So. Cal.

So after a full day of pestering the staff, their cheese delivery was finaly driven down from San Francisco around 5:00. MMMMMMMMM sweet bag of pure milky goodness. Pricey at $14 per 1 lb ball/bag but cheaper than driving up to A16! Easily worth the 3X premium over the mozzarella available in town.
